The guiding motif of this video is the phased gesture of a hand when a palm catches a black object continuously "hanging" in the centre of the image. The animation of pictorial motifs in the foreground evokes the impression of a fall, but in fact it is caused only by the moving background. The media term "moving image", which sometimes replaces technologically and culturally burdened categories of video and film, fits Kateřina Zochová's video. However, the term "moving image" is made more accurate here: it particularly expresses the fragility of the boundaries between static and moving images.
